First run of the year at Rockingham BRDC Formula 4 test

Matty took to the track for the first time in 2015 on Tuesday (April 14th) testing with front running BRDC Formula 4 outfit Sean Walkinshaw Racing at Rockingham Motor Speedway in Northamptonshire.

Running with the same team that he raced to fourth in the inaugural F4 championship in 2013, Matty impressed on what was his first time out in an F4 machine in nearly 18 months.

His fastest time of the day, a 1:24.2, was good enough for second in the session in which he set it and sixth overall on the day.

On what was his first visit to the track, Matty also had to contend with having to learn the behaviours of the Pirelli tyres which the championship now uses, his performance shows he has lost none of his pace within the category.
